After taking violin lessons from the age of five, he started playing bass guitar at fifteen. After graduating from high school, he and Petrucci enrolled at the Berklee College of Music , where they met Mike Portnoy. Style[ edit ] Myung mainly uses a two or three finger picking style in his playing. He sometimes uses slapping and popping on some songs, such as "The Dark Eternal Night", and also uses tapping and harmonics in his bass playing. Myung uses both tapping and fingerstyle to play the Chapman Stick.

Great for people that are trying to learn more about music theory and get more technical with their playing.
The excercises are not impressive or necessarily fun, a lot of choral patterns, chordal applications, etc. This guy went to Berkley College of Music so basically you are getting a seminar from Berkley School of Music without the insane entrance test and the pressure of swinging with the best of the best all the time.
In addition to the excercises are a few little impressive pieces and at the end he jams with Derek Sherinian and Mike Portnoy. This film really helped me a lot, not just with playing but also theory and some cool techniques he shows his three finger technique and how to practice it, some tapping technique and more. I would say definitely buy it, I already have it and I will buy it again when it comes out on dvd or bluray. One person found this helpful.
Mazubei A Change of Seasons. This is actually only a video produced by Rittor Music a Japanese Corporation where Larry Graham play some tunes and show his amazing canvas of techniques together with Kozo Suganuma a great japanese drummer. Using an animated fretboard, recorded audio and variable-speed MIDI audio over songs and exercises teach all the skills you need to start playing. Tapping virtuoso Dewayne Pate has taken these techniques to higher musical ground, and presents each building block in a very practical, groove oriented fashion. The bass is the heartbeat of the music, the foundation of the groove, and the glue that holds together all the different instruments.
